Back to (Grad) School Workwear

Although I have been blogging for all but my first year of grad school, I have shared very few workwear looks. Public health professionals and academics dress more smart casual than business casual, so I usually wear dark jeans and a tailored top for meetings. However, this academic year, I have a couple of conference presentations and talks lined up where I need to look as professional as possible, especially since I have a baby face! I partnered with London Times to showcase three workwear looks that as great for graduate students, as well as any working woman!

Classic Black and White

A classic workwear look is a pair of black trousers with a white or off white blouse. The London Times Sage Pant is ridiculously comfortable and stretchy, and the bootcut style makes it easy to wear with heels. Add in the London Times Stacie Top, and you’ve got the perfect professional outfit. Don’t I look straight out of a LinkedIn profile?!

Upgraded Buttondown

I feel more professional when wearing a button down shirt. Sometimes I don’t want to be bothered with a collar or potential gaping. The London Times Sloane Top is collarless and has feminine draping that looks great slightly tucked. Plus it comes in olive too, as you know, my fave color of the moment!

All Black Everything

For all my monochrome fashionistas after my own heart, you can still wear all black and look professional. Try a slinky black blouse with waist ruching to amp up the color’s slimming effects, like the London Times Tia Top.

I had a great time shooting these looks at my “place of work,” Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health. Here’s to a productive school year!
